First off, my husband would like me to point out that he asked me to make all of this for him. These pants are the harem version of his Disco Mechanic coveralls… Robo Genie?
These genie pants are perfect for Burning Man. You can layer warmer leggings underneath, and still be fabulous and comfortable. By the way, I have a matching pair of pants myself.
He’s so fabulous and funny! I love that he is so comfortable with himself that he wears these clothes, and that I can make them for him. It’s not like he’s wearing this outfit to the grocery store, but he probably would if I asked him too.
I also made his shirt and hat. The rainbow sequin tee is lined with neon orange jersey, because it was too itchy! The hems are bound in a lycra tape. The shirt’s a little short, so maybe I will add a band of another fabric.
I hand-stitched the hat back in 2009, after Jason lost a similar hat when we met at Burning Man. I used compressed cardboard for the brim, and gave it to him the first time I came out to California to visit.
I just made a tutorial for these pants, so check it out if you’d like to make your own.
